Dubai Disadvantage... [travelling Japan > UK]

Flying on Emirates is going to involve Dubai ... and that can be a tad problematic at the minute. Lots of us will be simply not flying, but for those still braving the airways Dubai can be an issue....

A380 for HND

My wish would be for Tokyo to be served by 2 daily A380 flights. Right now it's an A380 for NRT but 777 for HND. Maybe happen next year for the Olympics?

Not lowest fares...

Yeah, but not just the lowest fares. The quite expensive and profitable to EK Economy Flex Plus fare still requires an extortionate £75/sector, total £150 one way fee even for higher tier Skywards...

Are miles charged for fuel surcharge for upgrades?

Itís not news that EK have been devaluing Skywards from perhaps one of the most generous programmes in the skies to something very much more miserly. One of the Scrooge-like cuts was to start...
